Great article from The Thrillest featuring Armonk at the top of the list of NYC suburbs! Want to find out more about Northern Westchester? Contact me today.
From The Thrillist: We fully acknowledge that no place on earth can ever truly make you forget New York City. But, if you’re ready to face reality — like that the average price of a Manhattan apartment surpassed $2 million for the first time ever this year — and actually let yourself enjoy life while saving money (now there’s an idea!), these NYC suburbs come pretty close.
Whether you want a backyard that looks like Central Park, a restaurant scene that rivals the city’s, or an affordable beach town free of tourists, each of these NYC suburbs would serve you well as a Plan B.
It spans just six miles — half the length of Broadway — but no New York neighborhood could ever measure up to Armonk’s one-two punch of great food and proximity to the outdoors. At early morning favorites The Beehive and Market North, you won’t have to wait in crazy lines for brunch or a nitro coffee. For lunch, you can get brick-oven pizza alongside a local beer at Amore, which seats diners next to a vegetable garden and an actual flowing brook (how many brooks do you eat next to in South Williamsburg?). And you won’t miss the city’s infinite dinner options when you’re having farm-to-table meals from Union Square Cafe vets at Restaurant Northor homemade pasta at Moderne Barn. Walking through Wampus Brook Park nature preserve and Kensico Reservoir, you’ll wonder how you ever talked yourself into the idea that McCarren Park was the great outdoors. It’s not all food and nature, though — this northern Westchester County hamlet, which is just 55 minutes from NYC, is also home to excellent schools and homes that cost less than anything you could buy in the city (the median property value is $992,400).
